Support Local Project: January 2021

Support Local Project: January 2021
January 31, 2021 Marco Mion

Here we are almost another year later, still dealing with lockdowns and businesses forced to close because of it.

Every week, instead of purchasing a treat from the grocery store, I have decided to support a local business by trying out their food, drink, service or product they have to offer. I will post each Friday on my Instagram stories and recap for the month on the blog.

Here’s a recap for the local businesses that I’ve got to support this past January:

Merivale Fish Market

Check them out if you’re looking for another option for sushi in Ottawa.

Farinella Pizza

Enjoyed some Farinella Pizza for NYE dinner. This pizza is one of my favourites in Ottawa.

Can’t beat the classic margherita, it is my personal favourite!

The Foot Collective

Thanks to the guys at The Foot Collective for setting me up with some new indoor @VIVOBAREFOOT

shoes for the office, ball and toe spreaders. I ended up gifting the toe spreaders to my sister-in-law

to start her barefoot journey! Start yours here:

Sleepy Steep Tea

Caught so many more zzz’s sipping on 7 Deadly Teas this past month. I enjoyed it/it worked so well that I bought two more packs to share with others. Experience the calming effects yourself

Pizza All’Antica

Nothing beats that wood fired oven in the heart of Manotick. They make it hard to drive by this storefront on the way home from work and not want to pick up take out!

Watch your pizza cook in the oven, try not to eat a slice before you get home…!

Dairy Distillery

A naturally made dairy addition to coffee with a little kick! (this was a Christmas gift!)
